WILD THREAD: What's Up With the Wingnuts?

I've always known the bulk of them are crazy, but... Wow. They've cranked it up to 11.9 over the last year. Birthers. Truly off-the-wall Godwining. What's up with that?

This thread is hereby WILD! Comment policy does not apply within.

They've always been this crazy, it's just that they shut up a bit when one of their own is in office. I remember nearly this much insanity when Clinton was in office. The extra bit this time around is because now the ebil Demokkkrat prez is also a black man, dun dun dun!

The Godwining specifically is most likely a result of the fact that they can't openly voice the actual racial basis for their fear of the Obama presidency (at least not without becoming even more reviled). As a result, they have to just slap together whatever bullshit they can in an attempt to hide the real motives for their big freak out.

HOW WE WON THE JAMES RANDI MILLION DOLLAR PARANORMAL CHALLENGE:

http://www.debunkingskeptics.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=264

the objective was simple:

1) to reveal that Nostradamus was a genuine prophet who could predict
the future with 100% accuracy;

2) to demonstrate that prophecy and atheism are not compatible with
each other and are mutually exclusive;

3) therefore dawkins, pz, randi and their skeptic atheist followers
were deluded liars...

and we achieved our MISSION 100%...

"For God's mercy will be poured forth only for a certain time, my son,
until the majority of my prophecies are fulfilled and this fulfillment
is complete. Then *****several times***** in the course of the doleful
tempests the Lord shall say: Therefore I shall crush and destroy and
show no mercy; and many other circumstances shall result from floods
and continual rain of which I have written more fully in my other
prophecies, composed at some length, not in a chronological sequence,
in prose, limiting the places and times and ****EXACT DATES**** so
that future generations will see, while experiencing these
****inevitable events****, how I have listed others in clearer
language, so that despite their obscurities these things shall be
understood: When the time comes for the removal of ignorance, the
matter will be clearer still."

UNDERSTAND?

And since the current strategy is to cater to the fringe, the non-crazy politicians are in the unenviable position of having to pacify their 'base' without opening themselves up to ridicule.

The moderates and sane people have sold their integrity to the fringe, thus giving the fringe an open forum to voice their fringiness. All that it takes for insanity to prevail is for sane men to say nothing.

Or, well, that's how it looks to me.

PS: Haha, Mabus's copypasta is back. Does he just subscribe to a bunch of tags, or something?

Mmm...copypasta...

I agree with Lunacrous. They're all a bunch of fucking racists who will believe anything so long as it helps them rationalize their prejudices.

Oh, and we should all read this. Via Greg Laden.

Are there any left wing wingnuts over there in America? Or are they all right wing republican wingnuts?

Bronze Dog said...

Wingnuts are right wing. The left wing counterpart are moonbats.

"Wingnuts are right wing. The left wing counterpart are moonbats."

George Galloway is a moonbat over here in the UK.

Jacqueline said...

This guy isn't a moonbat:

But he isn't a wingnut either.

I've mentioned it in some other comments elsewhere, but with the nuts going around making ludicrous Nazi analogies, the next guy with spine on par with Barney Frank's should ask these astroturf town hallers a very, very simple question:

"Do you even know who Hitler was?"
